Jothy Rosenberg is one of the most inspirational guests we’ve had on Motivational Mondays. He holds a PhD in computer science from Duke University and has been a CS professor there for over five years. Additionally, he's the founder of nine high-tech startups spanning various domains. Today, we dive into his harrowing yet inspirational journey as both an entrepreneur and active sportsman despite a leg amputation at the age of 16 due to cancer.

Jothy emphasizes the importance of setting achievable goals and celebrating each milestone along the way. He expresses this is a universal challenge for the disabled and fully able-bodied alike. By breaking down daunting challenges into manageable tasks, Jothy says we can cultivate a sense of accomplishment and momentum.

Jothy's journey exemplifies the indomitable spirit of the human soul. Through adversity, he not only found strength but also discovered a deeper understanding of resilience and triumph. His story serves as a beacon of hope, inspiring others to embrace challenges with courage and determination. 

This week, you’ll learn how doctors ultimately discovered Jothy’s leg cancer, why Jothy endorses Medical Marijuana in helping to treat cancer patients, and why Jothy believes disabled people often become achievers of excellence.
